Thoroughly enjoyable

I ate here a couple of years ago while passing through Bakersfield, and remembered it as being really good. This time we stopped in for lunch; I ordered the fish tacos and a beer. The tacos were great. The fish (I think it was tilapia) was tender and flaky. This was nothing fancy, just done very... read more

Our food arrived cold. They promptly returned the returned food & to my surprise they had just warmed the food (microwave?). The other person's plate returned with a new taco, but reheated enchilada , beans & rice. The service was fine, place was clean. However I won’t return nor recommend since they didn’t have the professionalism & decency to remake... More

Thought this would be promising place but it ended up being a big disappointment. The steak picato was tough without much flavor, chips were ok and our waiter was not the friendliest type. Way overpriced for the quality. Perhaps one of my least favorite Mexican food places of all time. Should have gone to the taco joint down the street.

Have dined here half a dozen times. It is always excellent, no matter what dish you order. Always immediately seated, excellent service, hot, tasty food, authentic all the way. Highly recommend you try this establishment.

Had one of the lunch specials. Sat in the bar area. Service was fabulous even though it was busy. Generous chips and good salsa. Food was tasty and it came in less then 10 minutes.

We go here about once a month for their Tuesday Night fajita special, and I order the #12. Delicious and especially the salsa, the best in town. We always get excellent service and delicious food, and enough that I carry some home for the next day's lunch.

We eat here on Tuesdays for the fajita special for my husband, and I get the #12 each time, allowing me to take one item home for the next day's lunch. My meal was exceptionally good this time, with the chicken cooked perfectly for the burrito, the chili verde enchilada was tasty and the beef taco was perfect. We enjoy... More

YUCK - YUCK - YUCK. I've gone to so many mexican restaurants and I think I know bad food when i taste it. The chips were stale, salsa was almost black?? the chile verde had some weird leaves or something in it, beans and rice tasted like taco bell. My husbands plate was no better. He had dried up carnitas... More
